Thorne Carnityl 60 VCaps
Thorne Research Carnityl 500 mg. - 60 Vegetarian Capsules
Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) is synthesized from L-carnitine in the brain, liver, and kidney. ALC supports fat metabolism and energy production in the mitochondria. In addition, ALC supports brain function by enhancing production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Taken supplementally, ALC is better absorbed and crosses the blood-brain barrier better than L-carnitine. Several studies have demonstrated ALC's effectiveness in supporting cognitive health in the elderly, especially if supplementation is begun when mental health is thought to be at risk of declining. Other studies have shown ALC may be of benefit for maintaining a positive mood in the elderly, possibly by partially inhibiting the activity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and lowering chronically elevated cortisol levels (which become elevated during stressful situations).

Dr. Michael Lebowitz D.C. Recommends:
Acetyl-L-Carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid similar to acetylcholine. It is a strong antioxidant, stabilizes membranes, and enhances cholinergic transmissions. It is considered neuroprotective. It has been used in testing Alzheimer's, senile dementia, Down's syndrome, and depression. Often it blocks positive muscle tests of most metals (including mercury) and toxic chemicals. It is possible that it actually helps pull metals and chemicals out of the brain (it readily crosses the blood-brain barrier).
